What is a Physical Therapist?
Physical therapists (PTs) are licensed health care professionals who diagnose and treat people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives.

PTs examine individuals and develop plans using treatment techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.


Qualifications of a Physical Therapist
PTs must have a degree from an accredited physical therapy program before taking the national licensure examination. Licensure is required in each state in which a physical therapist practices.

In the state of Massachusetts, physical therapists may practice as independent medical practitioners. This means that you can be treated by a physical therapist without a doctor's referral.
